A bumper issue tonight beginning with Sarah’s news summary. We have a couple of match reports from Chelsea and an excellent outing by our second string in the mini derby when we thumped Manchester United 5-0 on a very wet and windy Tuesday night in Hyde, an excellent game to witness after our recent first team débâcles.
